Skoda Kodiaq 2.0 diesel 150 bhp starting problems

Post by Jb8591 » Fri Nov 09, 2018 3:55 pm

Hi
My Kodiaq is 14 months old and the battery has just failed. I have heard of other Kodiaqs having the same problem but was interested in seeing how many others had encountered the problem and if the replacement battery was made under warranty.

Thanks

That thread will cover it for you. I have had the same issue and it’s a known problem on 2017 builds. I have had the battery and a management module replaced under warranty. Two visits as they only did the module first time but both need changed. Don’t let them just do one and not the other.

If you need any further advice or information please PM me and I will be as helpful as I can.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

Thanks for that, the thread is very helpful. Unfortunately the dealership are blaming the wiring on a tow bar for draining the battery without any evidence as far as I can tell at the moment, hence they say it isn’t a warranty repair as the tow bar doesn’t comply with Skoda standards. I am fighting this as it is almost £300 for a new battery and fitting!

Get the Exec Office involved at Skoda Customer Services as this is a known issue and unless the can prove it’s the tow bar then they can’t argue otherwise. Don’t let them get away with it.

Dealers tend to be useless. Several times now I have had dealers overruled by the Exec office. Let us know how you get on and if (I doubt) I can help by supplying evidence it’s a known issue I will be glad to do so.

Again thanks for this information, I’ll contact the Exec Office and see what they say. I’ll update you on any outcome.
Regards
John
